As usually, thank you so much for listening.
God forbid they cast a black girl in a roll. Each time they do, then recipients claim it is some political equipment. When the reason should be that Ariel's skin color doesn't matter as she is a mermaid. She isn't living in a country that has culture....she is under the sea. Perhaps she got the part because she did nice at the audition.
The major thing that I've noticed is they're using original videos, that were/are tried and real dollars makers. Can't think of one lib makeover that beat the original tho. The direction things are going Disney will finally take over universal and monopolize our screens. Leading to price gauging for diversity and bland scripts. They'll have to run a white entertainment media. Kinda like BET did when they "felt" not included. I know black folk that laugh about all this and know it's ridiculous.
